National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk - exhibition on s/s Soldek

Project 2020 year
Realisation 2021

„Soudek” - a unique monument of naval technology, currently the only steam-powered ore carrier preserved in the world. After World War II she was the first prototype seagoing ship built in Poland (6 such ships were built). From the first voyage in 1949 to the last one in 1981 "Sołdek" made 1479 voyages around the world, she carried a total of over 3.5 million tons of coal and iron ore. She has a historic construction with an original welded and riveted hull, a deck of the lordship type, crew quarters, four holds, a fully equipped engine room and cargo handling equipment.

The ship is named after Stanisław Sołkdek, a constructor, a leading worker in the Gdańsk Shipyard in the years 1947-48 (206% of the norm in the position of the sternwheeler), and later a master engineer in shipbuilding.

The permanent exhibition below his deck, "Soldek and its times", presents the history of Polish shipbuilding and maritime trade in the second half of the 20th century.

The exhibition arrangement on the ship-museum is based on contemporary media.

"Maag" prepared the Executive Project of the exposition on s/s Sołdek commissioned by Q-Fidelity Sp. z o.o.
